New Model Army – Poison Street

New Model Army - Poison Street
Poison Street by New Model Army, taken from the album The Ghost of Cain, released by EMI in 1986. Lyrics: We were singing in the rain – like we invented singing There’s a light in the sky from a million street lights And we danced all the steps from all those old time movies Rolling down the hill with laughing hearts In Poison Street they guard the gates with bitter, bitter tongues In Poison Street we’ll laugh out loud until the shadows go melt away And I love you now like I love you always ever Kissing in the dark like a couple of kids You gave me life, you gave me light and thunder Like a blind man sees for the very first time In Poison Street we’ll go crashing through the walls that history made for us In Poison Street we’ll spring the traps and race away Ch: So just a kick for this dark damned city of ours And a kiss, yeah a kiss for you And just a drink, a toast to the days to come Now Poison Street won’t break us any more We were singing in the rain – like we wrote that song There’s a light in the sky from the streetlights all around You gave me life, you gave me light and thunder Like a man makes fire for the very first time In Poison Street . . .
